After teaching for about 17 years,
I found I am addicted to correcting peoples
grammar,spelling and punctuation,
as captured in this blog.
I like collecting signs and adds that should have gone through
the final step of editing before being published.
The first ad was on craigslist.
grate deal - $600 (poulsbo)
its grate you will have fun all dishes in clouded and new coshons and lots of extras call shawn at 360)xxx-xxxx
Either some kid was trying to sell his Dad's camper
or some Dad should have study his kid's spelling words.
It took me a few read-throughs,
to understand that dishes were "included"
and were not in heavenly vapors.
I don't care about the new cushions,
I was hoping he'd throw in the truck.
This second one is compliments of my friend,
Mr. Timmy on Facebook.
I just noticed that it says
Do you think that is more appropriate since this was posted at a restaurant?
Speaking of errors,
didja' catch my five errors in the above post?
Don't count the mistakes from the ad,
which is in boldface.
Lemme' know if you passed my little
and punctuatshun quiz.
